Real winemakers get their hands dirty. Hands black with wine. That's what Manos Negras is all about. Rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands dirty. That's how we make these handcrafted wines.
Sourced from the Altmira district of the San Carlos county, located in the southern Uco Valley at an elevation of 4,000. Altamira has Mendoza's most unique soil profile, with a patchwork of sandy, silty and stony soils all present in the same vineyard. The stony soils contain a high content of surface stones - round rocks that are literally painted white with calcium carbonate.
These patches of stony soil are very low in organic material and very high in mineral content. Their poor profile naturally brings down yields for exceptional concentration of aromas and flavours. Their rocky character imparts a stony texture to the Malbec wines. The Manos Negras Stone Soil Select Malbec is made entirely from select Malbec grapes from these patches of stone soils.
